Senate Passes $636 Billion Military Bill: Includes $128.2 Billion for Iraq, Afghan Wars. Question: Has your City Government cut funding for services this year? Laid off workers? Cut back hours? Why not fund our Cities properly first? End the War(s).
Civilians fleeing South Waziristan to ‘safety’ appeared in today’s dawn.com. People have been leaving over the past months in as the Pakistan Military have been shelling their towns and dropping bombs from airplanes, along with the U.S. assasination Drones dropping Hellfire missiles and other missiles on ‘selected’ militant targets. This will be much worse than Swat Valley destruction. What will be left of their villages, their homes, their livestock and crops? The roads, bridges, schools, water supply, will all be blown to bits. It was to cost $2.5 Billion to repair Swat Valley after the attack and Pakistan went begging to the foreign governments for money to reconstruct what they spent a few Billion to just destroy. Does this make any sense? We are breeding more extremists from those that survive this assault. It is stated that over 10,000 fighters are in South Wariristan and have been successful from driving back the Pakistan Military in the past, but that was before the U.S. had its assasination Drones in the air. Now they can be picked off from 60,000 feet in the sky.
Another headline from dawn.com: Six killed as jets hit militant positions in South Waziristan. Makeen and Nawaz Kot areas of South Waziristan were bombed,’ said an intelligence official in the main provincial town Wana. ‘We have reports that six Taliban were killed and an unknown number of them were injured.’
From the Daily Times: Army ready for new assault on Osama lair in Waziristan
LAHORE: The Taliban showed their resilience with a daring attack on UN offices in Islamabad, as the military readies 28,000 troops for an offensive in South Waziristan Agency, the Independent said on Tuesday. The Waziristan operation is likely to be the army’s sternest challenge yet, but the military is poised to launch a major offensive in the coming days in South Waziristan, long rumoured to be the hiding place of Osama Bin Laden.
Meanwhile, Quetta is in the U.S. sights. The U.S. has information that Mullah Omar is there and are preparing for assination Drones to take him and other high command out in a Drone attack. Pakistan so far has not given its ‘approval’. After each Drone attack, Pakistan Government admonishes the U.S. for the attack. The Drones are taking off and landing from an airfield in Pakistan, and now a new field has opened up in Afghanistan in anticipation of the Pakistan public demanding that the Pakistan airfield be closed once they realize it is in operation. The Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mehmood Qureshi says in a HiPakistan article “Quetta Shurra has lost its existenceas a number of its activists have already been killed or are active in Afghanistan.
